A plurality of timings are estimated for a received signal wherein the plurality of timings correspond to a plurality of transmitted signals. The received signal is then sampled in accordance with the plurality of timings, to produce a plurality of sample streams from the received signal. Channel estimates are produced for the plurality of transmitted signals and metrics are computed using the sample streams and the channel estimates. Information symbols corresponding to the transmitted signals are detected by using the metrics. Accordingly, by using multiple timings for a received signal, rather than using a common timing, the number of channel taps that are used may be reduced and the accuracy of symbol detection may be increased. The channel estimates may be produced by generating pulse-shape information and producing channel estimates for the multiple transmitted signals using the received signal and the pulse-shape information. Channel estimates may be produced that correspond to a plurality of symbol sequence hypotheses. Channel estimates may be updated using an error signal.
